The Pains of Being Really Bad At Estimating The Amount of Time It Would Take Me to Write This Paper

I am keeping my sanity writing this thing by listening to some good tunes! I have to skip my show tomorrow night, sadly, for emergency paper-writing purposes. I've been really into:

Bibio- Hand Cranked,
Panama!3 Comp, Calypso, Jazz, etc 1960-175,
Volcano Choir- Unmap,
Islands- Vapours,
United States of America- S/T (if you haven't heard them and you heart Broadcast, kick yourself!),
Love- Forever Changes,
Forest Fire- Survival,
Sunset- Gold Dissolves to Gray,
Sparklehorse & Fennesz- In The Fishtank

I just got the Trumpett MP3 Sampler 1979-2008 in the mail from the Netherlands today, but it's on a mini-CD, which I cannot play on my computer, so I am freaking out. I will have to wait until I am at work and can use a normal tray cd player. Way to think futuristically, Apple. "This 3" dvd-r consists of no less then 144 tracks as mp3 (320 kbps encoded and suitable for pc and mac), selected for you from the Trumpett archive. The tracks date from 1979 to 2008. Next to tracks from the archive and slim-line series there are pieces from the promotional and christmas releases present, as well as from the in-house non trumpett series. Featured amongst others are The Actor, Ende Shneafliet, Doxa Sinistra, C. Stein, A. van Garde, AEG, Thromboh, André de Koning, dr. Pho, Different Klons, Depeche Code and Jetset. What a great way to get an essential part of this monumental archive at home!" Drool. You can order it here: http://www.trumpett.nl/

James Alley Blues

Times ain't now nothing like they used to be
 Oh times ain't now nothing like they used to be
 And I'm tellin' you all the truth, oh take it (from) me

 I done seen better days but I'm puttin' up with these
 I done seen better days but I'm puttin' up with these
 I been havin' a much better time with these girls now I'm so hard to please

 'Cos I was born in the country she thinks I'm easy to rule
 'Cos I was born in the country she thinks I'm easy to rule
 She try to hitch me to her wagon, she want to drive me like a mule

 You know I bought the groceries and I pay the rent
 Yes I buy the groceries and I pay the rent
 She try to make me wash her clothes but I got good common sense

 I said if you don't want me why don't you tell me so
 You know, if you don't want me why don't you tell me so
 Because it ain't like a man that ain't got nowhere to go

 I've been givin' you sugar for sugar, let you get salt for salt
 I'll give you sugar for sugar, let you get salt for salt
 And if you can't get 'long with me well it's your own fault

 How you wanted me to love you and you treat me mean
 How do you want me to love you, you keep on treatin' me mean
 You're my daily thought and my nightly dream

 Sometimes I think that you too sweet to die
 Sometimes I think that you too sweet to die
 And another time I think you oughta be buried alive

Down to the Bits That i Left Uptown

Whenever I am feeling content, disillusioned, overwhelmed, or just plain happy- musical treats to the rescue! Predictable (from me) yes, but oh so good.

Dancing to nowhere, I'm losing my head.

It's the way you stood.

The East means so many things.

Too Young to Burn

Really love this new Sonny & the Sunsets LP, Tomorrow is Alright. LP comes out 11/17.

This is the first track, Too Young to Burn.

"For some reason we tend to make a distinction between hearing a sound and feeling a vibration, in reality they are the same thing. It is interesting to note that in the Italian language this distinction does not exist. The verb 'sentire' means to hear and the same verb in the reflexive form 'sentirsi' means to feel..." An interesting read on Hearing.

Michael and the Mumbles record is out! Michael from the Michael Yonkers Band! Mid 60s garage rock before he went all psych. Before the Michael Yonkers Band, There was The Mumbles

If you don't know the Michael Yonkers Band, definitely pick up Microminiature Love (1968) which was only released in 2002.

Tall Tales of Trauma

LOVING this.
Tommy Jay.
"The long-awaited reissue of the 1986 Old Age/No Age cassette, Tall Tales of Trauma. A collection of DIY barn and basement-recorded classic from 10 years (out of 30) worth of recording by TOMMY JAY- member/songwriter and co-producer of EGO SUMMIT, MIKE REP & THE QUOTAS, and the (Ohio) TRUE BELIEVERS. The tracks are of a musical dark matter, an unseen cosmic force connecting 1970s Ohio punk/folk 4-track experiments to the Cowtown lo-fi explosion of the early-90s and beyond. Limited edition of 500 copies on both formats. CD includes eight bonus tracks."- Columbus Discount

Heard this Jonny Trunk record at Wall of Sound today, and I absolutely love it! I need to pick it up soon. Here's a track:

And I've found myself going back to Coil as the winter looms overhead.
All from 1986's Horse Rotorvator. Including a Leonard Cohen cover!

324 E. 13th Street #7

They could have done better with Dee Dee. I'm not complaining. But seriously, token bananas.

Seriously though. Just got this in the mail:

Roy Montgomery's 324 E. 13th Street #7 album. Collects all six of Roy Montgomery's solo singles until 1999 anyway, a rare single from his band the Shallows in 1985, and four previously unreleased tracks. I heard a song on WNYU I think, and loved it so much I had to order this CD from Ebay. I am prepared to devour more of his music, including his other bands Dadamah, The Shallows, and Hash Jar Tempo. Not sure what the rest sounds like, but this is pretty much Jandek+Slowdive.

This show happened? GROUPER + PUMICE + ROY MONTGOMERY + CHRISTCHURCH? Really? Damn. I need to move to New Zealand I guess.
